    Do you people also have the same issue that Handoff for the iWork does not work? For every other app like Safari, Mail, Maps, Reminders etc it works perfectly but not for the iWork

    Nothing works on my devices! I have a iPhone 5s and an iPad Air. Both logged in with the same iCloud account and both on the same wifi. Bluetooth is turned on on both. Yet nothing happens. I don't have any setting under FaceTime for iPhone cellular something. What's going on? I know that the messages side of thing is due in October but I keep reading all over the place of people getting calls to their iPad. Any tips?

    Ok, so my phone calls are working, but not handoff with emails or messages. Just to be sure that I am doing it correctly, here is my procedure: I open the mail app on my iPhone 5, select G-mail, pick a recipient, and then put "test" in the subject field. I then lay my phone down, pick up my Air and open the mail app and go to Gmail. Nothing there about an ongoing message. Am I doing it wrong?

    I got this to work at home the other day, but not at work (maybe the work WiFi is blocking it somehow)?

    Anyway, at home if I had on of my devices inactive/locked (either the iPhone 5 or iPad mini w/ retina) and started an email or went to a website, when I picked up the other device and pressed the Home button, there was another icon in the bottom LEFT of the screen. That icon corresponded with the app I was working with on the original device. A quick swipe UP and it would go into the app and continue with the email or website.

    But....now at work again and not working. Sad face.

    Ok, apple said that continuity wouldn't work on my iPad but apparently I DO get call alerts. I dunno if it rang or not because I noticed the missed call notification, but interesting to say the least. Good job, Apple, I like surprises

    (Now, if my phone could magically show up in the next couple days, that would be fantastic).

    I would LOVE to hear Apples real reason for not allowing us pathetic iPad 3rd generation users to have continuity and hand off.

    SOME people are saying they DID have it the first day and then it was taken away!

    I also can't help but notice how much slower my iPad is after ios8, and the numerous keyboard glitches as well as crashes.

    Two possible outcomes: I sell my iPad at a loss and buy a new one for **** reasons OR look into Apples biggest competition when my contract expires.

    Hmm decisions decisions.

    Which iPad / phone do you guys have? It doesn't work with all of them.

    Continuity features are available on iPhone 5 or later, iPad (4th generation), iPad Air, iPad mini, iPad mini with Retina display, and iPod touch (5th generation).

    So I can't use it iPad to phone, myself, but when Yosemite comes out I can do this stuff on my MacBook, which is cool.

    The Mother-in-laws 1st gen iPad Mini rings when her phone rings & she's got a 4S, if it only works with a 5 up how is it that it works for her?

    The list was from Apple itself, so Bits and pieces of handoff and continuity may work with older devices but Apple isn't guaranteeing it.
